The murder of Zurdo Jerez by a police bullet in the corridors of the Unico de La Plata stadium back in 2013on the occasion of a Estudiantes-Lanús, constituted the beginning of the end, the goodbye of the visitors in Argentine football albeit with dozens of asterisks.

The Rise, for instance, hadn’t had them for a long time. Some tournaments, such as the Copa Libertadores, allow them if they come together with teams from other countries but not with the local ones. Not to mention the Copa Argentina, which when played in third-party scenarios, we look the other way to allow the two biases because they would be, let’s say, neutral… Some definitions in the First Division have also allowed it, as long as the facilities allow it. Thus, the rod is very particular.

However, after playing the entire League Cup without ‘visitors’ -beyond the usual infiltrators or the hypocrisy of selling tickets to ‘non-members’ and filling their pockets but without violating categorizations-, the semi-finals seem to wink at the fans. And the final push comes from the very Argentine Football Association and its president Claudio ‘Chiqui’ Tapiawho took advantage of his social networks to handle the matter.

The truth is that, hours before the start of the Final Four and Racing-Boca in Lanús and Argentinos-Tigre in Huracán, the AFA viralized a video strolling through all the First Division fields and with slogans -without turns- of the style ‘How nice it would be to be a visitor again’ and an exhortatory ‘Let’s enjoy the party that we are capable of organizing’in a clear search to consider these three remaining parties as a sort of pilot tests for what may come.

Utopia or reality? What will the leaders say behind closed doors?
